Welcome back to the Hip Kit Club blog. It’s Halloween and I imagine that streets are filled with pumpkins, spooky paraphernalia and children playing enjoying the site. Here in Australia Halloween is not celebrated by many but there are a few that although may not believe in the custom they do believe in taking the opportunity to connect with their family, friends and neighbours and provide a spooky treat to achieve it. We are one of those families. Today I am sharing a 6×12 layout with you highlighting a photo of my little witch and Captain America (who is secretly my 3 year old nephew).
Now I know 6×12 is a strange size layout but I encourage you to give it a try. This size layout is perfect to slip between some project life pages to highlight a particular photo and it is also a great album size to sit on a coffee table for people to enjoy without taking up a large amount of space.
To put this layout together I used the bright and happy October Hip Kits which are still available for purchase, and the free spooky cut files available to Hip Kit Club subscribers.
I created the boarder around the edge of the layout by stamping one of the floral wreath stamps around the edge of white yardstick and then adhering the Vicki Boutin vibrant orange patterned paper titled ‘simple things’ over the top leaving a small boarder.
I then added the spider web cut file and using a black pen put dashes along the edges to help the web pop off the page a little. I then built a cluster around my photo using some of the ephemera pieces and the hip kit club exclusive project life cards.
I then added my title ephemera piece “sunshine on a cloudy day’ and super cute bats, and finished off with some journaling using the Heidi Swapp stamps set and some cute teeny tiny puffy hearts.
I hope my layout has inspire you to scrapbook your halloween photos and to try a different size layout. Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments below.
